CONN., 1644-1664. 

By John J. Latiing, of New York. 

The Rev. John Jones was, as his name imphes, of Welsh extraction. 
The families in Wales bearing his patronymic, however, are so numerous 
that an attempt to trace his pedigree from any published records would 
seem to be a task almost impossible. He is stated to have been " Edu- 
cated and regularly ordained as a preacher of the Gospel in England," 
where he married and had several children. What is said, in some ac- 
counts, of his being identical with the " Johannes Jones " son of William 
Jones, of Abergavenny in Monmouth, matriculated at Jesus College, Cam- 
bridge, April 30th, 1624, at the age of 17, is now admitted to be entirely 

As appears from the interesting autobiography of Rev. Thomas She; .re,. 
he came a fellow passenger with him in the ship Defence from London^j 
landing at Boston 3d Oct., 1635. Although neither his name nor that 
Shepard appears in the Custom House list of passengers of the vessel, ye 
this list contains the names of Sarah Jones aged 34, Sarah Jones, 15^ 
John II, Ruth 7, Theophihis 3, Rebecca 2, and Elizabeth 6 months, un-j" 
doubtedly his wife and children. Not long after this date, he is found tc 
have penetrated through the then wilderness to Musketaquid, afterwards! 
Concord, and engaged with the Rev. Peter Bulkley in the work of estabi 
lishing there the " 12th Church of Christ." Edward Johnson in his quainl 
History of New England or " Wonder Working Providence of Zion': 
Saviour " describes him as a " Valiant Leader of Christ's Souldiers, a holy 
man of God," and has left us this sonnet to his worth. 

" In Desarts depth wlieie Wolves and Beares abide, 

There yoncs sits down a wary watcli to keepe 
O'er Christ's deare flock, who now are wandered wide ; 

But not from hini, wliose eyes ne're close in sleepe. 
Surely it sutes thy melancholly minde 

Thus solitary for to spend thy dayes, 
Much more thy soule in Christ Content doth finde, 

To work for Him, wiio thee to joy will raise. 
Leading thy son to Land, )ct more remote, 

To feed his flock upon tliis Western waist : 
Exhort him then Clirist's kingdome to promote; 

That he with thee of lasting joyes may tast."

ers sent to arrest Thomas Marshall, the Quaker whom he harbored 
- his house, and for « uttering clamorous and reproachful speeches against 
the MSr;, Government and Officers." Governor Newman who presided 
on d itriil took occasion to cast in the culprit's teeth the report of a 
discourse he is said to have held with "two men yt. came fro y . Bay

whkh friend Crabb was so unwise as to reply," y'. was a beggarly place. 
Thev said it was a good place. He rejoined, " yt. f pnest and y'

The early records of this church, as well as those of the town having been 
burnt, or carried off, at the time of the destruction of the Vi lage of Pair-

illustrate the period of his pastorate.

1875.] J???, /o/rn Jones, First Minister of Fairfield, Cotm. eg 

In the year 1653, during his uiinistr)-, occurred in Fairfield that disgraceful 
and shameful proceeding — the trial, condemnation, and execution of Good- 
wife Knapp, for witchcraft, one of the first instances in New England of 
the tragic results of that superstitious delusion. That both the Pastor and 
his wife were active participants in this affair, is apparent from the evidence 
given on the trial of the suit of Thomas Staples against Roger Ludlow, in 
the following year. Ludlow had reported among other things that Mrs. 
Knapp, both before and after her condemnation, had charged Goodwife 
Staples with being a witch, and he, lAidlow, had also further defamed her 
by charging her with " making a trade of lying." Hence, the husband, in 
this suit, sought vindication of his wife's honor, and pecuniary compensation 
for his own and her mental sufferings. The proofs produced on this trial, 
are the only known record of the proceedings in the witchcraft trial. 

Mrs. Lucy Pell, wife of Thomas Pell, testified that at Goodwife Knapp's 
trial, she was one of the women appointed by the Court to search the vic- 
tim's body for witchmarks, and Mistress Jones, the Pastor's wife, was pres- 
ent, and pressed her to confess whether there were any other witches in 
Fairfield. On the day succeeding her condemnation, and while she lay in 
prison, both the Pastor and his wife are found visiting her ; it may be, only 
for her spiritual comfort, but the witnesses say they were continually urging 
her to confess she was a witch, and thus " make way for the minister to 
do her good." Rebecca Hull, the Pastor's own daughter, in her testimony, 
gives us a picture of the mournful procession to the place of execution, 
where Mr. Ludlow and her father are seen walking together by her side, 
still pressing her to confess she was a witch. To the credit and courage 
of the poor woman, be it added, she belied not her dignity of womanhood 
by making any such absurd admission. ' 

It is presumed this Mistress Jones was his second wife, Susanna, men- 
tioned in his will, and who survived him. His first wife, Sarah, as well as 
his son, Theophilus, probably died in Concord. He himself, in 1658, had 
already attained to such an age as to require an assistant in his pastorate, 
which the church readily provided. The respect in which he was at this 
time held by his townsmen and the General Court, may be inferred from 
the following entry which the court saw fit to make at their session at 
Hartford, on the 20th of May, of this year : "This Court approving the 
pious care of the Towne of Fairfield in procuring help for Mr. Joanes by 
his own consent thereunto, as far as appears by a pap' p'sented by their 
Deputies to y" Court, doe order that according to their desires, the afore- 
said paper be kept amongst the Court papers & desire the Towne not 
any way thereupon to deprive y"" Rev'nd ancient Pastor Mr. Joanes in 
sickness or health of his comfortable maintenance." 

He died at Fairfield, in the month of January, 1664, and left the following 

January 17, 1664. 

I, John Jones, Pastor of the Church at Fairfield in New England, being 
weak in body, but of perfect memory, do make and ordain this my last 
will and testament. — imprimis, I commit my soul into the hands of God, 
and my body to be buried ; and as concerning my worldly goods, I dis- 

* It may not be out of place to add that the Court held " that there was no proof that good wife Staples 
was a witch," and Ludlow, the defendant, was ordered to "pay ;£io to the husband for his wife's name, 
and £s for his tiouble and costs." 

6o ■ Rev. John Jones, First Minisicr of Fairfield, Conn. [April, 

pose of them as follows ;— First, my will is that seven pounds be taken out 
of my estate which 1 shall leave behind me, to be delivered to the heirs or 
executors of Capt. Cullick, sometime one of the magistrates m Connecti- 
cut Jurisdiction, being due to him. 

Item, whereas I promised to my dear wife, Susanna Jones, fifty pounds, 
in case'l died before her, and beside gave her a silver bowl within a little 
while after that I was married unto her, this I do confirm by my last will 
that they are due unto her :— moreover, my will is that the said Susanna 
my wife, shall have the use and benefit of my twelve acres of land in the 
great meadow, and of my orchard in Fairfield, during her life ; and after 
her death that it be divided equally to or amongst my six children, John, 
Eliphalet, and my four daughters, Sarah Wilson, Widow Ruth James, 
Rebecca Hull, and Elizabeth Hill. . • 

Item.— I give to my eldest son John, part of my library, to wit, the 
works of Augustine, Chrisostom, and of other authors (usually called "the 

Fathers.") , , , , , . . , , 

Item —I give the rest of my goods undisposed (my debts being paid and 

funeral discharged) to be equally divided amongst my aforesaid children, 

John, Eliphalet, Sarah, Ruth, Rebecca and Elizabeth. 

In witness whereof, I set my hand and seal the day and year aforesaid. 

John Jones. : Seal. 

Postscript —I make and ordain my wife Susanna Jones, sole executrix 
of this my Will and Testament, and Mr. Gold and Mr. Pell, both of 1 air- 
field, overseers thereof. 

The widow doth accept of the place of an Executrix. 
The widow makes oath that ihis is the last Will of Mr. J. Jones to the 
best of her knowledge— this 30th June, 1665.

Of the children, Sarah married Thomas Bulkley, son of the Revd. Peter 
Bulkley of Concord. They came with her father to Fairfield, where he 
died about 1658. By him she had a daughter, Sarah, born at Concord, 
Aucr I. 1640. After her first husband's death, she married Anthony 
Wifson, of Fairfield. He died early in 1662. She subsequently made a 
will, April 26, 1667, giving lands to her two sons, John and Joseph be- 
sides books and other property ; and to her daughters, Sarah, wife of Elea- 
zer Brown, Rebecca, wife of Joseph Whelpley, and Hannah, books and 

other property. j r- 1 

loHN Jones, son of the Rev. John Jones, graduated at Harvard Col- 
lege in 1643, in his 19th year. Was admitted freeman at Concord in 1645. 
He is supposed to be the "son" referred to by Johnson m the verses on 
his father above quoted, and is believed to have subsequently removed to, 
and settled in the Island of Nevis, in the West Indies, where he married 
and died prior to 1673, leaving a son, John, who with his mother, the 
widow, subsequently returned to New Haven. '

Rebecca, one of the daughters, married Cornelius Hull, of Fairfield, by 
wnom she had Samuel, Cornelius, and Tlieophilus, and daughters Rebecca, 
Sarah, who married Robert Silliman, and Martha, who married Cornelius 

Elizabeth, another daughter, married \Villiam Hill, of Fairfield, and 
survived her husband, who died in 16S4. She had five children, William, 
Eljphalet, Joseph, John, and Sarah. 

Ruth, the other daughter, married James, but of her or her de- 
scendants nothing now is known. 

Ei.iPHALET Jones, youngest son of the Rev. John Jones, was born at 
Concord, January 11, "1641. Entered Harvard College in [662, but did 
not graduate, probably by reason of his father's death in the second year of 
his course, and of his limited means. In 1669 he is found stationed at 
Greenwich, in Connecticut, in which year he is admitted to the privileges 
of a freeman.' Whether he was here at this time as a settled minister or 
not does not clearly appear. In 1672 he was called to Stamford, as col- 
league or assistant to the Rev. John Bishop of that place. On the 3d of 
May of that year, the town voted " to give Mr. Jones an invitation to be a 
minister of the- Gospel in this place if he remove from Greenwich." In 
November of the same year he is " accommodated with a piece of land in 
liis own right, provided he settle here in the work of the ministry," and Mr. 
Law, Mr. Holly, and Jonathan Sellick are chosen to treat with the Green- 
wich men "about their compliance with Stamford, for the upholding of the 
ministry in this place." The town subsequently exchanged the above 
"piece of land," which was "on the west side of the Southfield," for the 
more eligible tract on the beautiful headland fronting and overlooking 
Long Island Sound, now owned and occupied by Capt. B. L. Waite, and 
the Brothers Alfred and Benjamin Scofield. This was the same field which 
the Sagamores reserved for their planting ground when making the 
original grant for the town in 1640, but which also w'as subsequently sur- 
rendered by them to the town. It was now (1672) voted that " Mr. Jones 
shall have that piece of land at Wescus which was improved by the Engins 
in case it be cleared from all English and Engins and this land to be Mr. 
Jones' proper right in lue of that jiiece of land granted to him on the west 
side of the southfield." While residing here he also preached at Rye from 
time to time. The General Court of Connecticut sitting at Hartford, .May 
14, 1674, made the following order: " This Court desires Mr. Eli[)halet 
Joanes to take the paynes to despence the word of God to the people of 
Rye once a fortnight on the Lord's Day till the Court, October next and 
then this Court will take further order concerning them and for Mr. Jones's 
satisfaction." - He must have been popular as a minister at this period. As 
early as 1669, the year of his commencement in the minislr}' at Greenwich, 
the people of Jamaica, L. I., voted to send a messenger to invite him to 
visit them with a view to a settlement, but it apjiears he declined going. 
In 1675, on an invitation from the people of Huntington, L. I., he visited 
them, and in January following he was desired to " Continue among them 
as their minister, and they voted to give him twenty acres of land where 
lie chose to select it. He appears not to have permanently settled there 
Irowever, until 1677, when he was formally ordained as the successor of

the Rev. William Leverich, over the First Presbyterian Church at that 
place. Here he continued for over half a century. He is described as 
" a man of great purity and simplicity of manners, and a faithful and suc- 
cessful preacher." 

Not until he had attained his 78th year, did he have the aid of an 
assistant. At that time Mr. Ebenezer Prime, then a young man, ancestor 
of our well-known and very worthy fellow-citizens, the Revs. Samuel I. and 
Edward D. G. Prime, and of Wni. C. Prime, Esq., was engaged in that 
capacity, and four years afterwards, in 1723, was ordained as colleague; 
on which occasion Mr. Jones, then in his 82d year, presided at the 
ordaining council, and delivered the pastoral charge. He lived to the 
age of 91 years and died in Huntington, June 5, 1731. He never married, 
and what estate he had he bequeathed to his sister's son, Eliphalet Hill, 
his namesake, who, in his declining years, took care of him and managed 
his affairs. 

At the easterly end of the main street in the now peaceful village of 
Huntington, rises an eminence which overlooks the town and the beautiful 
harbor and the country for miles around. This the early settlers had set 
apart and consecrated for the sepulchres of their dead ; and here they 
buried their Pastor. But here, fifty years afterwards, came Col. Benjamin 
Thompson, Count Rumford, with his vandal troops, and demolished the 
church, and with its timbers erected block houses and barracks over the 
graves which he levelled for the purpose, using the tombstones for build- 
ing tlieir fire-places and ovens. One veritable chronicler tells i?s how he 
had heard from the lips of living witnesses that they had seen these 
soldiers draw their loaves of bread from these ovens, having the reversed 
inscriptions of the tombstones of their friends on the lower crust ! But 
" the whirligig of Time brought about its revenges :" the Briton with his 
minions of outrage passed away, and the Peace of Desolation settled over 
the sacred enclosure. 

When a full century had elapsed, and the ashes of the aged minister had 
reposed so long beneath the sod, that the place of their interment had been 
utterly forgotten, or all mementos of it entirely obliterated by these ravages 
of war, the peo|)le of another generation — the descendants of the sires to 
whom he had so long and faithfully dispensed the Word of God — still cherish- 
ing and reviving the memory and tradition of his virtues, erected a plain 
but decent cenotaph in remembrance of him, in this their public burial 
ground. The stone bears the following inscription : "In Memory of Rev. 
Eliphalet Jones who was the only settled Minister in Huntington, from 
1676 to 1723. He was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and died between 
1730 and 1740, near 100 years old." 

He deserved a better monument, and one with a more fitting and correct

TOHN CRUGER came from Germany to America previous to the year 
i7'oo, and resided in the City of New York. An old record in the posses- 
sion of Mr. John C. Cruger, of Cruger's Island, says: 'trom the t.aduioi - 
arv account in the family and from the coat of arms which he brought with 
him it is supposed he was descended from the family of Baron von Cruger. 
¥ e ame of that family was always spelt with a C, whilst that of the com- 
monalty in Germany is spelt with a K." The name itself m its origin is a 
corruption, undoubtedly, of the Latin Cruciger, or cross-bearer 

He was a merchant, a high-toned gentleman, and a prominent c.ti/.en of 
New York during the first half of the eighteenth century He was elected 
AldLman of the Dock Ward in 1712, and held the othce till i733 mchi-

in th^ Assembly, and remained a member till the termination of the Lng- 
lish rule in 1775, the long period of seventeen years. In 1769, m a closely 
contested election, he was' chosen Speaker over William Livingston, the 
candidate of the Presbyterian party, afterwards Governor of New Jersey, 
an 1 filled the same office in all succeeding Assemblies to the Revolu ion. 
^rom this fact he was always known in New York -fi;-„death, which

John Harris Cruger, the eldest son, succeeded his father in 1773 as 
one of the Governor's Council, and was also Chamberlain of the City of 
New York, and in otlice at the breaking out of hostilities three years later 
When the Provincial Brigade " De Lancev's Battalions" was raised in 
1776, under Oh verde Lancey as Brigadier General, "for the defence of 
Long Island, and other exigencies," he was commissioned Lieut. -Colonel 
o| the 1st battalion or regiment, General de Lancey himself being the 
Colonel. He was very distinguished as an officer, on Long Island, at 
Savannah, Charleston, and Camden, brilliantly and successfully defended 
Fort Ninety-sLN; in South Carolina, against Gen. Nathaniel Greene, who 
was compelled to raise the siege, and by his coolness and steadiness turned 
the fortunes of the day in favor of the British at Eutaw Springs. 

After the war he went to England, and resided at Beverley^in Yorkshire, 
where he died. He had no issue. 

Henry Cruger, the second son, educated at King's College, N. Y., was 
m 1757 sent by his father to Bristol, England, to enter a counting-house. 
He became a successful and popular merchant of that citv, which he made 
his honie. In 1774 he and Bldmund Burke were nomina'ted for Members 
of Parliament for Bristol, and after a sharp contest elected. He was also 
once Sherift" of Bristol, and in 1781 was elected its Mayor. In 1784 he 
was again elected to Parliament. In 1790 he declined a re-election, hav- 
ing determined to return to America and reside there for the rest of his life, 
and in the same year came back with his family to his native city. Here he' 
soon became engaged in politics, and notwithstanding his service in Parlia- 
ment, and especially his re-election in 1784, after the peace of 1783, and 
subsequent service of about six years, he was, in 1792, elected a Senator 
of the State of New York, and served as such. His residence during the 
latter part of his life was at 382 Greenwich St., New York, where he died 
the 24th of April, 1827, aged 88 years. 

His first wife was Miss Peach, daughter of Samuel Peach the great Banker 
of Bristol, by whom he had one child, Samuel Peach Cruger, who subse- 
quently took the surname of Peach, and was the late Samuel Peach Peach 
of TockingtoR House, Gloucester, in England, who married a daughter of 
William Miles, of Leigh Court, near Bristol. They had one child, Emma

[The original records of all these marriages are copies of the marriage 
certificates, and to each certificate are appended the names of the witnesses 
present at the ceremony. .\s these names are, in most instances, very 
numerous, generally comprising all members of the Society present at the 
meeting, and are thus necessarily merely repetitions of the names of the 
same persons, the Publication Committee have concluded to omit them. 
The full transcript is in the hands of the Committee, and open to the in- 
spection of any one desiring to examine or copy the names.]

CnABB, Richard — Was of Stamford, Conn., 1641-1658. Who was his wife? On 
his trial before the Court of Magistr.ites, at New Haven, May 2Sth, 165S, he testified 
that " she was a well-bred woman in England, a zealous professor from her childliood, almost 
beyond example." (New Haven Col. Records, vol. ii,, p. 246). In a petition of Robert 
Coe, of Jamaica, dated May 9, 1661, preserved among the Dutch MSS. in the Secretary 
of State's Office at Albany, vol. ix., p. 600, he refers to Richard Crabbc as his " brother- 
iti-la-w." Crabb was presumably at this date a resident of Oyster Bay, L. I., where he 
married for his second wife, Alice the widow of Peter Wright. He died there on the 
6th of April, 16S0. J- J- i- 

De Sille. — Vol. vi., p. 54. — In reply to enquiries about Nicasiiis de Sille, I would 
state that de Sille had children, Laiirenee, born in Holland, and married a dauglitcr of 
Capt. Martin Cregier ; Gerdienlje, who married Jan Gerritse Van Couwenlioven, the an- 
cestor of the Brooklyn and New Utrecht branches of the Couwenhoven family, among 
whom the name of Nicholas abounds to this day ; and Anna, who married, Feb. 29, 1660 
(see N. Y. Dutch ch. rec. ), Hendrick Kip. 

The U'albrilg de Sille wlio married Frans Cregier was probably a relative of NiCASiCs, 
but I have seen no evidence of her being his daughter. On the marriage record she is 
entered as from Mestricht, while Anna, who was married the same day, is entered from 
Van Wyck.

Hallett, Lydia. — What was the maiden name of the wife of Joseph Hallett, and 
who were her parents? Her husband was born at Hallett's Point, August 14, 1714, and 
died at same place December 14, 1731, aged 27 ; having issue by his wife Lydia, one son 
and one daughter. 

1st. Joseph (merchant, a prominent member of the N. Y. Committees of Safety, of 
the first State Congresses, active in procuring arms and ammunition for the army at the 
opening of the Revolution, of large wealth), born Jan. 26, 1731, died August 9, 1799. 

2d. Lydia, born 1732, soon after her father's death; died 26th Feb., 1812 (buried at 
Sunsvvick, Newtown, Blackwell reserved burial ground). She married, Feb. 19, 1755, ^^^^ 
cousin Colonel Jacob Blackwell, by whom she left issue. 

Letters of administration were granted on the estate of the above Joseph (who died 
1731), Vol. n of wills, p. 205, to Richard Alsop of Newtown, and therein the widow 
Lvdia is frequently named. The inventory is made by Jacob Blackwell and Thomas 
Alsop. M. L. D. 

Hazard. — Mrs. Nathaniel Hazard, born Elizabeth Drummond. Who were the pa- 
rents of Mrs. Elizabeth Hazard ? Her husband Nathaniel Hazard died at his house in 
Hanover Square, N. Y. City, January, 1765, and left a numerous progeny. Her maiden 
name was Elizabeth Drummond ; she died at the house of her daughter Mrs. Joseph 
Hallett, 229 Duane St., N. Y. City, May 27, iSii, aged gS. Tradition says that she 
was born in Scotland and passed most of her youth in France. Only by a long residence 
in France could she have acqnired the thorough knowledge of French which she posessed, 
and correct pronunciation as rare then as now with the English siieaking races. Dutch 
and English were equally familiar, whether she understood Scotch, the writer has not 
learned. Her knowledge of the Bible and Biblical History were very remarkable, in ar- 
gument she was wont to iUustrate such subjects with quotations and references, references 
often drawn from works not easily attainable in this country. For this knowledge, for the 
information she could impart and for her piety, her society was sought by the clergy of 
this and neighboring cities, including members of other besides her own (Presbyterian; de- 

Tradition names Scotland as her birth-place, and the date is fixed, by the record of her 
death, at 1713. On the other hand it is found that Ann, wife of Robert Drummond (a 
vintner) was confined in 1 7 13 in New York City. 

May 30, 1 7 16, Robert and Ann Drummond (he a vintner), residing in Elizabethtown, 
N. J., applied in this city for letters of administration on the estate of Monteth Noell, 
said .'Vnn Drummond having formerly been the wife of Richard Hall, who in his lifetime 
was brother to Monteth Noell by the mother's side. It further appears that by her for- 
mer husband the said Ann had two children, Elizabeth and Ann. 

It is now claimed notwithstanding the assertion of those now living who know Mrs. 
Nathaniel Hazard, that she was the daughter of Roliert and Ann Drummond ; but is it 
likely that having one daughter living (by her first husband Hall) named Elizabeth, a 
daughter by Mrs. Drummond's second husband would also be called Elizabeth. Mrs. Ha- 
zard's descendants are so numerous that we may hope extended inquiry will clear up the 
disputed question of her birth, the true facts must be known by some of them.

Odell. — William Odell, supposed to be a descendant of the English family of Odell 
mentioned in Burke's " Landed Gentry," in 1639, came from England to Concord, Mass., 
where he was probably a member of the congregation of the Rev. Peter Bulkley, who 
was born in the parish of Odell, Bedford Co., England. In 1644, Mr. Odell removed 
to Fairfield, Conn., and his son William became one of the principal proprietors of Rye, ' 
New York.

England one. He was for many years a partner with William E. Howland in the house 
of Howland and Aspinwall, which succeeded that of the elder Howlands. He took much 
interest in the establishment of steam communication with San Francisco, and the success 
of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co. and of the Panama Railroad is largely due to his exer- 
tions. The eastern terminus of the road was named after him in acknowledgment of the 
zeal and ability which he displayed. He leaves two sons, Lloyd Aspinwall, who succeeded 
him in the firm, and the Rev. John A. Aspinwall, Rector of Christ Church, Bay Ridge,

of a numerous family, of whom seven sons and three daughters grew up. The eldest son 
John married in Engl.and Mary, daughter and lieiress of John Roberts of Whitchurch, Co. 
Bucks. The only issue of this marriage, according to Burke, was a daughter, Mary Ann.

in Geneva, New York, and Mary, married to Bishop Neely of Maine. The second son 
Joseph married Julia, daughter of Maturin Livingston and granddaughter of the late
